OPEN DAYS 2005 – European Week of Regions and Cities:
“Working together for Regional Growth and Jobs”
By a call for papers, which was open between 12 April and 3 May 2005, the European Commission’s Regional Policy Directorate-General looked for contributions from practitioners in the field of regional development and the management of Structural Funds and instruments. In total, 132 proposals were received, of which some 60 will be selected to form part of the final seminar and workshop programme for the OPEN DAYS. The 132 proposals were sent from nearly all Member States with a focus on presentations on preparing the next generation of Structural Funds programmes.
